The Thunder have been on fire since the “unofficial” second half of the season has begun, winning six of their first eight games against Portland and New Hampshire after hosting the Eastern League All-Star Game on July 15th. The team begins a three-game series in Harrisburg tonight before returning home to face those same Senators in a five-game in four day homestand. Obviously the ThunderCast will be your home for audio highlights for the entire Harrisburg series here at Waterfront Park . As for now though, you will just have to keep yourself occupied with a blast from the past….
….back on June 27th, I had a chance to chat with the top pitching prospect in the Phillies Minor League System, Kyle Drabek. Kyle is the son of former Major Leaguer Doug Drabek. In 1990, the eldest Drabek went 22-6 with a 2.76 ERA for the Pirates en route to his first an only NL Cy Young Award. Recently, Kyle has been in the center of the Roy Halladay trade talks, however in the past few days, Phil’s GM Ruben Amaro Jr. has said he will NOT trade the youngest Drabek or slugging outfielder Michael Taylor to land Mr. Halladay. Anyways, here is my conversation with Kyle (because it was back on 6/27, I was unaware of the Halladay musings and did not ask him if he would enjoy moving north of the border to Toronto). I hope you enjoy….
